America's favorite recluse
just got a life!
As Emily Dickinson said: “Tell all the truth but tell it slant…”
There has been so much fascination with the poet’s persona and the myth of her life that I could not help but imagine a more “slanted” version. Did she only wear white? Was she a total recluse? Did she have a love life? Was she obsessed with death? As any (amateur) scholar would do, I look to the poems for answers. Using her own words it is with obsessive reverence and extreme nerdiness that I present Emily as someone you might friend on Facebook, or follow on Instagram, or Twitter, or write to firstname.lastname@example.org, or join her mailing list or, um, not.
